Lot 499K. This lot of three gilt glass water goblets is estimated £40-£80.

Inspired by and incorporating designs and moulds originally created by renowned English silversmith Paul De Lamerie (1688-1751), the company has produced a fantastic array of patterns and designs, including bespoke ones for individual clients.

The original Paul De Lamerie was renowned in the late 17th and early 18th century. In 1703, he became apprentice to Pierre Platel, a goldsmith of Huguenot origin. Beginning with Queen Anne styles, Paul’s work evolved into elaborate Rococo style pieces. In the same vein as the De Lamerie company, his customer base also included many prominent figures of the time, including the Earl of Thanet, Earl of Ilchester, Tsarinas Anna and Catherine, and Sir Robert Walpole, to name a few.

A De Lamerie cup & saucer and soup cup & stand

Lot 499J. This cup & saucer and soup cup & stand is estimated £25-£50.

The modern De Lamerie company carried forth the spirit of Paul’s work and designs, having created a wealth of distinctive, opulent sets and pieces. The examples shown are merely a selection of the lots that will be featured in Potteries Auctions’ September General sale.

A De Lamerie plate, bowl and square handled plate

This lot consisting of a plate, bowl and square handled plate is estimated £25-£50. Lot 499F.

The extravagant decoration of De Lamerie fine bone china, glassware and silverware is certainly eye-catching and worthy of great interest.
